That's the output that the speaker is designed to handle. The 996 specs state that the audio output is 2.6W nominal into 8Ω speaker, so any of those speakers will work. A 20w speaker won't be any louder than a 5w, but the sound will be different based on speaker size, magnet weight, etc.ddpelpwb9tev said:5, 12 and 20 watts
I bought a Bearcat ESP 12 (12 watt) off ebay. It really improved the sound of my 996 and is a well made nice looking speaker.ddpelpwb9tev said:I see uniden has a choice of wattage for their speaker looks like 5, 12 and 20 watts which would be better for listening leven from the BCD996T?
